Ed Sheeran Background
Starting a career in music is never an easy endeavour, and it is common knowledge that Sheeran spent a large part of his early career couch surfing. It was also around this time that the young singer-songwriter played an astonishing 312 shows in one year! Having cultivated a small following, along with the release of two EP’s (The Orange Room LP and You Need Me), Sheeran managed to secure a place touring alongside indie hip-hop rapper Just Jack, collaborated with singer-songwriter Leddra Chapman and later was invited to tour with Brit-pop singer Example!

Ed Sheeran's debut and rise to stardom
Releasing his debut album, +, in 2011, songs like “The A-Team”, “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” and “Lego House” proved that the young songwriter had a true talent. What was especially notable about +, was the elements of R&B and hip-hop that have become some of Sheeran’s trademark sounds! Firing his former manager in order to pursue music the way he wanted to, Sheeran audaciously recounts the whole thing in “You Need Me, I Don't Need You”, as The Independent's Andy Gill wrote “...He’s a bona fide hitmaker with a colossal YouTube following, working in the argot and style of his own generation”.
In 2014 Ed released X and finally took America by storm. X peaked straight at number one in both the UK and the US! Much of the songs from X, were actually written after the release of his debut album +, yet he decided to wait. The move certainly proved to be the right one, as the following year, Sheeran performed three sold-out shows in the ever impressive, Madison Square Garden! Leading the album with hit single “Sing”, it’s this track that featured the heavily talked about collaboration with Pharrell Williams! Considering the track was written with Justin Timberlake in mind, Sheeran is the first to embrace the references, saying how much of a fan he is of Timberlake’s debut album Justified!
